HistoryEdit

Our Most Desperate Hour TCG by Villeneuve

Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa use a grappling hook to flee the Imperial forces

The Jedi of the Galactic Republic were commonly equipped with grappling spike launchers during missions, which were developed by the quartermasters at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Simpler fibercord grappling hooks were used by the clone troopers during the Clone Wars[1], and by the scout troopers and stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker used a fibercord grappling hook found in his stolen stormtrooper armor to swing himself and Princess Leia Organa across a chasm on the first Death Star.[2]

Ewoks were known to use primitive grappling hooks as weapons and for navigating obstacles, as well as for more unusual uses such as retrieving objects. Princess Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka of Bright Tree Village was highly proficient with the grappling hook and used it as her primary weapon.[3]

The bounty hunter Boba Fett was known to equip his fibercord whip with a small grappling hook for use in capturing bounties.[4]

The Feeorin pirate Nym was also known to use a grappling hook.
